Step 1 - Create a Knockout Cup or Group Stage

If you need to create a new Cup follow step 1, otherwise for existing Cups skip to step 2.

  • In Admin Home click on the button: 'Create a division or Cup'
  • Create a Knockout Cup or Group Stage Cup.
  • Initially the Cup is created without any stages.
  • Follow the steps to create a Cup, add teams and create the structure.

Step 2 - Add a new stage to the Cup

  • On the Rounds page press the button: 'Manage Stages'
  • In the Stages page press the button, 'Create New' to create a new elimination stage in your Cup
  • Name it and follow the instructions in the page
  • You may need to edit the 'Sequence' of the stages to make sure they are in the correct order

Step 3 - Change how teams progress in to the Elimination Stage

  • After creating the new stage, go back to the Rounds page, then click on the link 'change how teams enter this round'

Now you need to select how teams progress into this stage, so in this example we want the losing teams from a Group Stage to progress into the Elimination Stage.

  • In the dropdown select 'Stage: Group Stage, Round: Group Stage, Position 3'
  • Then press 'Add'
  • Then do the same again but for 'Stage: Group Stage, Round: Group Stage, Position 4'
  • Then press 'Add'

This means that teams who finished in positions 3 and 4 in the Group Stage will progress into the Elimination Stage.
